So this time of year is quite busy for Isabella and I.  It is the time of year that we spend all of our evenings at the dance studio rehearsing for the BIG SHOW.  It's my favorite time of year and it's also the most busy.  I mean with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and dance recital a haute housewife can only pull herself in so many directions before she feels a little run down.  This year is a big show for me. Not only am I in a tap number, I am also in a jazz number with Venus the dance team, plus I also choreographed a ballet routine for the preschoolers. I am most proud of my work as a choreographer.  It has been a dream come true for me.  I did it all by myself. Picked the music, put the routine together and chose the costumes. I have put my heart and soul into this little routine and I am so proud of the 8 little ballerinas who are performing it this Saturday.  Now don't get me wrong. I love dancing!! By nature I am a dancer. I have always loved to dance. Growing up I would spend hours in my room making up routines to music on the radio. I loved to watch American Bandstand and Solid Gold.  I loved to watch award shows just for the dance numbers. I loved to dance. I still do. At 36 years old I am living my childhood dream.  I will dance for as long as my aging body will allow. I think Isabella loves to dance almost as much as I do.  It has been a great experience for us as mother and daughter to not only have a passion for dance but to perform for our friends and families for the past 4 years.  It was even nicer having her as my assistant with my preschoolers.  She will be a great dance teacher some day. I look forward to many more recitals and one day watching her dance classes perform her choreographed routines.
